PUMAS Interns Poster Session
Join us to celebrate the work of 10 interns from Gladstone’s Promoting Underrepresented Minorities Advancing in the Sciences (PUMAS) program. Over the course of the 9-week program, each intern will have gained hands-on lab experience and worked on an individual research project.
Come view their posters, ask them questions about their project, and congratulate them on completing their internship.

About the PUMAS Program
The 9-week PUMAS internship program aims to provide laboratory experience to historically underrepresented community college students before they transfer to a 4-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). It is organized by the Outreach and Diversity team at Gladstone and funded by the NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
